During World War II, Cahier fought with the Resistance, then with the French 2nd Armour Division and was awarded the Croix de Guerre and the American Presidential Citation for heroism.

Cahier accents this remarkable photo collection with stories of friendships developed along the way with racing icons such as Enzo Ferrari, Henry Ford, Huschke von Hanstein, Juan Manuel Fangio, Zora Arkov Duntov and many others.
